    RIP

    I was never fan if him but I will say he was a seriously under rated guitarist and he had a
    taste for the ladies second only to The Heff.

    Prince was briefly hospitalized. Prince’s representatives say he had been recovering from the flu, which caused him to cancel two shows earlier in April.

    There was an event at Paisley Park on Saturday. According to reports, Prince appeared and showed off a new guitar, but did not perform.

    Paisley Park is located in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

    I believe the Fox show in Atlanta was his last... Anybody know if he did more gigs afterwards?

    Never will there be a guy that can rip on a guitar and dance like a fly girl at the same time...

    I've seen a few hundred shows I'm sure... all three of the Prince concerts I've been to are in the top 5 yet I don't own any of his music.

    Another legend gone far sooner than I would've ever expected. Both he and Bowie looked almost ageless. Damn.

    Yes, his original show in Atlanta was postponed. He came back and did the makeup show very recently. I know Rob who posts on here went to the show and I'd been meaning to follow up with him on how it was. I believe it was a scaled down show but not positive.

    I always watch this once every couple of months - seems fitting to view it now.
